0210 Mazdaspeed Protege Pl
The Mazdaspeed Proteg introduces Mazda's new line of performance parts and rounds up some impressive aftermarket brands, including Racing Hart wheels, Sparco interior, and Tokico dampers. Most important is the Callaway turbocharger, which gets 170 horsepower from the Proteg's 2.0-liter four and gives the coarse engine some better vibes.
2002-2003 Mazda Protege5
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii-- Of course, people stared when we drove by. Our Mazda Proteg5 was bright, screaming, roaring, flaming yellow. But this killer little wagon is likely to grab looks in any of its six colors, because it's simply the sharpest suit in the closet. Crisply pressed in all the right places, with broad fender flares and sills, deep-set foglamps, and big, alien taillight lenses, the Proteg5 is an eye-catching addition to the short list of entry-level cars that are cool enough for school.
